Praise God!  I'm so pleased and relieved you have a job CatherineBrigid.  I'll keep praying for a job in your career field and for the car bill to be covered in time.  Lord have mercy.

Thank you! Yes, please keep the prayers coming.  I am by NO means out of the woods yet.  This job will not, by any stretch of the imagination, provide enough for our family to live on.  It will cover my car and child care expenses, and that's about IT. This job will simply enable me to keep my car, so that I will have transportation.  It's not THE solution, but it is A solution to the most immediate problem.  God is at work... one step at a time. :)

Too much to go into, but things are very, very bad here. I am under attack from all sides, in so many ways... I am afraid.  God is good and God is with me..but pray for me... I need wisdom, insight, a few miracles and some favor... and still in need of a good job.  Quickly.  I'm struggling in several areas...were it not for my friends/church family... I'd have gone completely nuts long ago, haha. 

Thank you.

This is a very decisive week... there is a hearing on Wednesday... it either needs to be postponed or go in my favor.  This determines whether i get to keep my car or not... and keeping my car is paramount to my family's survival...because if I lose my car, I lose everything because I'll not be able to work. :( Prayers appreciated... also will have to approach my landlords and let them know I can't pay rent this month... pray for favor and mercy...... :(

Thanks be to God.. the hearing has been continued till another date.  This does not mean I am out of danger of losing my car...it just means it's bought me a little more time to hopefully find a real job. :) Still need a real job very soon....very very soon....and am seeking a new roommate, since the person who was renting the back rooms of the house has decided to bail out on me given my current hardships... right now when I need that $150/month more than ever, lol. *sigh*

BUT... God is good.  Period.  Come what may. 

Thank you all....

I just got yet another rejection email from a recruiter/employer. **sobbing** I am TIRED of living on the razor-edge of homelessness, waiting any minute for my car to be gone, for my lights to be shut off, for my kids to be taken by a vengeful ex... tired of being afraid....tired of being strong (even tho I am not strong, I am really very weak)... I. AM. FREAKNG. TIRED. and there's my selfish, small-minded, petty whining rant for the day.

Lord have his mercy once again. You put a whole new perspective on my interview tomorrow, thank you for holding back my pride.

FWIW I'm not sure how good your resume is, but I know someone who is a professional that is extraordinary at writing them. Yes it does cost, but if you're interested I can refer you to him. But atleast it will get you job interviews, if that's what you are struggling in.

All the best, and continued prayers from my end.
